 /  Advisory Council

The role of the Advisory Council is to give regular feedback on present Management techniques and business trends. The Members of the Council all take a leading part in today’s international business environment, and devote both time and counseling to UBI students and Faculty, be it for curriculum requirements or in other instances. Keeping Education as close as possible to the Business World is our common concern.
